Citizen's Forum Interviews Sharon Noble Director of Stop Smart Meters BC
Published on 14 May 2015
Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, has been
investigating whether ITRON's smart meters are causing and contributing to fires. Electrical engineers have identified several design flaws that could lead to fires. For example each meter has a lithium metal battery that explodes when heated or exposed to moisture. Laws have been broken. For example, the meters have not been certified to be safe.
"Meters have failed, melted and burned, but BC Hydro and the government continue to deny these incidents have occurred. No agency has the authority to investigate and demand changes because the government has demanded that the BC Utilities Commission and BC Safety Authority stay out of the smart meter program. If this program is so beneficial and the meters are safe, why is the government preventing investigations by the agencies responsible for our safety?

190 scientists from 39 countries
Martin Blank, PhD of Columbia University representing 190 international scientists in an Appeal to the UN, UN Member States and the WHO on the risks of electromagnetic fields emitted by telecommunications and utility technologies. Cautioning strongly, Dr. Blank says, "The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. To protect our children, ourselves and our ecosystem, we must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines." Video produced by ElectromagneticHealth.org on behalf of international scientists and the Appeal Committee.
Scientists call for Protection from Non-ionizing Electromagnetic Field Exposure
We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include-but are not limited to-radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF)."
The Appeal continues, pointing out there is: "Scientific basis for our common concerns: Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life."
and there are "inadequate non-ionizing EMF international guidelines," and:
"Collectively we also request that:
1. children and pregnant women be protected;
2. guidelines and regulatory standards be strengthened;
3. manufacturers be encouraged to develop safer technology;
4. utilities responsible for the generation, transmission, distribution, and monitoring of electricity maintain adequate power quality and ensure proper electrical wiring to minimize harmful ground current;
5. the public be fully informed about the potential health risks from electromagnetic energy and taught harm reduction strategies;
6. medical professionals be educated about the biological effects of electromagnetic energy and be provided training on treatment of patients with electromagnetic sensitivity;
7. governments fund training and research on electromagnetic fields and health that is independent of industry and mandate industry cooperation with researchers;
8. media disclose experts' financial relationships with industry when citing their opinions regarding health and safety aspects of EMF-emitting technologies; and
9. white-zones (radiation-free areas) be established."

Excerpt from John Robbins' Book Healthy at 110 dealing with electric and magnetic fields in our society
Excerpt from John Robbins' recent Healthy Lifestyle Expo 2006 talk about his new book, "Healthy at 100." This is a book aimed at baby boomers which looks at studies of 4 cultures where people regularly live to 100, and determine what these cultures have in common that is responsible for longevity and good health.
Local politics -- schools, zoning, council elections -- hit us where we live. So why don't more of us actually get involved? Is it apathy? Dave Meslin says no. He identifies 7 barriers that keep us from taking part in our communities, even when we truly care.
A 7 minute talk worth watching. As you do, think about how these "obstacles and barriers" apply to the smart meter problem, cell towers and the proliferation of other wireless infrastructure in our communities. The government is making it impossible to get information, is refusing to allow input, is lying and misrepresenting, is allowing no choice. If we, as a growing number of concerned citizens, all continue to work together as we have now for many years, we can knock down the obstacles and garner support and active participation. Together, we need to figure out how to do this in effective ways, regardless of governmental bureaucracy, BC Hydro and an uncooperative media.
Warning Labels for Radio Apparatus Act - Conservative MP Terence Young / C4ST - February 1, 2015 - Ottawa Press Conference (CTV Winnipeg News Video)
Conservative MP Terence Young calls for more effective warning labels on cell phones, Wi-Fi, portable phones, baby monitors, and all wireless devices sold in Canada, in order to protect Canadians and empower them with the information they need to understand potential serious risks to their health from long-term continuous use of these devices, and the greater risk to children. This is the first time a government representative has brought a Bill past a first reading re health warnings and labelling for wireless devices in Canada. He has multi-party support for this Private Members Bill.
A new article in The Tyee. Near the end of the article, it includes one Industry response, which seems to be Industry's old-fashioned style of response that insults the intelligence of the public with regard to corporate positioning and strategies. The article ends: "He [MP Young] said there may not be any evidence now, but he is confident that one day it will be shown that cell phones do cause cancer."
